Your Teacher: Your instructor is an independent contractor, not an employee of Azure Violins. They establish the available schedule and lesson plan.

Safety: Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance. If you choose to leave the store during your child’s lesson, please return on time. Azure Violins is not responsible for the loss of personal items. Keep your belongings with you at all times.
Tuition & Payment
Flat Tuition: The tuition fee is divided equally over a twelve-month period and the monthly tuition amount remains the same regardless of how many lessons are taught in the month. Tuition reserves your time slot for the same day and time each week.
Autopay: Lesson accounts are set up on Monthly Autopay and charged on the 1st of the upcoming month of lessons. If you’d like to pay by cash, card, or check, you must pay for a full quarter up front.
Late Payments: Payments not made by the 4th of the month will incur a $30 late fee. If tuition is still not received by the 7th of the month, lessons are suspended until the account is settled. After 30 days, the student is considered dismissed and will lose their exclusive spot in the schedule and will have to re-enroll.
We understand that life sometimes happens, so please communicate with us before the 4th if you think there might be a problem with your payment so we can work with you.
Stop Lessons: To stop lessons, written notice must be given by the 15th day of the final month of lessons to stop tuition for the following month. Please fill out a Lesson Discontinuation Form at the desk or online: www.azureviolins.com/stoplessons
